Only a 6-core chip though...

Hence why there's more to come since it's only the lowest of all Matisse SKUs ...

Even if it is only six cores, it's still a pretty good deal at $200 for 90% of the performance of a 9900K. I wouldn't be worried about next gen at all since >80% of all Steam users (which are outliers as it is) have less then 6 cores to begin with so developers will have to aim lower for them ... 

We don't know how many Cores will be reserved for the OS/Background tasks on next-gen consoles either, might only be 6-cores/12 threads reserved for actual games, who knows?

But... It's still only a 6-core chip and thus pretty uninspiring to me... I have had a 6-core processor or better for almost a decade now.
